Allow at least an hour and if your a history buff 2-3 hours. Covers stuff from lake Geneva but it carries over for the times portrayed.

I live about 15 miles from this museum. I never knew it was there. This place is AWESOME. Nice and clean, and a LOT of interesting things to look at - each theme in a separate room.

A lot to see. Allow enough time to see it all; a few hours at least.

Tons of historical objects. We didn't expect it to be so large! Schedule at least 2 hours here if you like history -- we are already planning on going back next time we're in LG

From Our Editors

Situated inside the historic Power & Light building, the Geneva Lake Museum replicates Lake Geneva's Main Street from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Inside the museum, visitors stroll around admiring the turn-of-the-century Georgian and Italianate architecture that forms historic stores, a school room, and a 1920s dental workstation, among other spaces. Guests may walk into the rooms themselves and closely examine old-fashioned farm implements, a telephone switchboard, or Potawatami tools and arrowheads. Beyond Main Street, museum visitors can study up on Frank Lloyd Wright's Hotel Geneva or the Chicago & North Western Railway. Sightseers can also explore Lake Geneva, the city's namesake and a 7.6-mile body of water that empties into the White River. The lake is surrounded by a 23-mile public path, which makes the area attractive to Midwesterners who want to take a scenic day trip or ducks that want to train for a marathon.
